PennDel Coaching partners forward-looking leaders with experienced coaches for the purpose of maximizing the leader’s potential and advancing the mission of the church.
The power of coaching is a learning relationship designed to produce new actions and outcomes. A coach is a trusted partner who is skilled at helping a person gain greater self-awareness, become more decisive, and move farther faster. One church planter said, “I know this — I’ve planted a church without a coach and I’ve planted a church with a coach. All I can tell you is that I’ll never plant a church without a coach again.”
In addition to connecting leaders with coaches, PennDel Coaching Network fosters coach training and promotes coaching as a best practice for emerging and experienced ministry leaders and their teams. If you are interested in having a coach, contact Bill Ellis (email@example.com) for a consultation or compete the Application Form.
A Huge Opportunity for Coaching Certification!
PennDel Coaching is offering a great opportunity to revive your coaching skills and build on the training you’ve received. Advance! Coaching Cohort is designed to move coaches toward AG Coaching Certification while also fulfilling the requirements for International Coach Federation certification.
This 3-month program includes training, 3 hours of mentor coaching from experienced coaches, and 15 logged hours of peer/client coaching. By February you will have completed the requirements for Level 1 AG Coaching Certification. Starting November 18 with a conference call, you will be provided with the means to become a great coach! The one pre-requisite is that you have completed 501 Coach Training or a comparable introduction to coaching course. Registration for the Cohort is only $150.00.
Advance will launch on November 18 with a 90 minute conference call at 7:30 pm. You will be notified via email of the call-in number and code.
Jane Abbate, Josh Torres, and Bill Ellis designed this cohort to fill the gap between coach training and coach certification. It answers the question, “Now that I’ve had training, how do I become certified?” It fulfills the initial vision of the monthly PennDel Deepen the Learning (DTL) calls that began 3 years ago.
We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity!
Feel free to pass this on to others who may be interested.
